    Microsoft updates seem like playing a game of buckaroo these days.

    That sounds like a good idea - shame that they didn't think of doing that the first time around :duh:

    They did, these update rollouts are always deployed staggered. Hence the common complains of "I pressed the 'check for updates' button but it didn't find it!" shortly after a new update is released, or the existence of the Windows Update Assistant tool for manually forcing updates (overriding the compatibility checker).

    First rule of writing code to delete an empty directory: write code to check if it's empty first.

    I mean, it's literally the difference between:

    Code:
    rmdir /tmp/directory
    and:

    Code:
    test "$(ls -A /tmp/directory)" || rmdir /tmp/directory
    (Actually, you wouldn't need the test in this example - rmdir won't delete a non-empty directory - but you get my point.)

    "fixed all known issues in the update"
    Subtle. So they didn't fix the old bug that the new bug acted on.

    I haven't enjoyed Windows 10, and found the constant updating frustrating. I appreciate the need for security updates but forced big updates a couple of times a year have frustrated me. I've had my computer get stuck in update loops, and have had previously functioning peripherals stop working. This latest issue was the last straw for me, as I could have easily been affected since I am one of those who place their documents in a non-standard folder. Add to this the metro UI and the focus on apps rather than fleshed out fully featured programs. I have reinstalled Windows 7 which, despite its flaws, is a superior operating system. Security risks (which so far have never affected me), lack of DirectX 12 and the lack of Hyper-V out of the box are my only complaints.

    Do we actually need dx12? From the limited research I've done, games are fractionally better off with it, compared to me being massively worse off using Windows 10.

    I wish more games would use Vulkan.
